INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police say they are investigating the death of a 61-year-old man found last week near Crown Hill Cemetery on the near north side.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers responded at 4:30 p.m. June 1 to a report of a person battered in the 3200 block of North Capitol Avenue. Officers found a man, who was later identified as Jeffery Davis, with injuries consistent with trauma, a release said Thursday.

Medics transported Davis in critical condition to an area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

IMPD did not provide details on a possible suspect or how Davis received his injuries.

Police say that autopsy results were not completed as of Thursday morning and a formal homicide determination is pending.

This story and headline were updated to correct the spelling of “cemetery.” The story and headline also were updated because investigators have not yet determined what caused the man’s death.
